The ImmersaDesk is a drafting-table format virtual prototyping device. Using stereo glasses and sonic head and hand tracking, this projection-based system offers a type of virtual reality that is semi-immersive.
The ImmersaDesk features a 4x5-foot rear-projected screen at a 45-degree angle. The size and position of the screen give a sufficiently wide-angle view and the ability to look down as well as forward. The resolution is 1024 x 768 at 96Hz.
